This is a great initiative:
The Fruit Tree Project, founded in 1999, is a community initiative which
operates in four Vancouver neighbourhoods: Mt. Pleasant, Little Mountain,
Cedar Cottage, and Kitsilano.
Our idea is simple: we build communities and strengthen food security
using local backyard fruit. We connect people who have excess fruit from
their backyard fruit trees with those who have the time and energy to
harvest it. Most of the harvested fruit is donated to community organizations
and individuals in need. We also are partnered with Community Kitchens to offer
canning workshops; skills which are quickly being lost in our urban environment.
Our harvest activity falls
between the months of July and October.
